Positive news for the Nuneaton Academy

The Nuneaton Academy has received positive news following their most recent Ofsted visit.

The school, located on Radnor Drive in Nuneaton, has moved from an ‘Inadequate’ rating to ‘Requires Improvement’.

Key points from the report state:

  • Leaders have created a positive and cohesive school community
  • Pupils feel safe in school. Their behaviour at social times and in many lessons is good.
  • Safeguarding procedures are effective.
  • Recent changes in governance have already helped leaders to improve the school’s curriculum and appoint a full complement of specialist staff. As a result the pace of improvement is quickening.

Principal, Simon Lomax said: “I am pleased that the hard work of staff and students to improve the Nuneaton Academy has been recognised by Ofsted. Here at the Nuneaton Academy we are fully committed to continuing this improvement and striving towards being a school of excellence. Moving forward, we will be further developing the level of stretch and challenge in lessons. In order to implement this we have appointed a progress coach to support students on a one-to-one basis to ensure progress in core subjects and optional subjects at KS4.”

Marion Plant OBE, CEO of the Midland Academies Trust added: “The Midland Academies Trust is pleased with the progress that this report highlights. The Nuneaton Academy has demonstrated sustained improvement and is well on the way to becoming a school of choice for the local community. The leadership of the Academy continues to be effective in focusing on key areas for improvement and ensuring the very best for our young people.’
